Another interesting Sauvignon Blanc from coastal chile. This is one of the more "expensive" ones, but even at $25, its is an excellent value. Silvery/ gold in color, with just the slightest bit of cloudiness. Lots on minerality and salinity on the nose with some lime and the slightest note of tropical fruits. Light bodied but concentrated. Slightly oily texture. On the palate, understated grapefruit that gets more pronounced as it moves toward the finish. Also limes and minerality. The is not too dissimilar to many New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs in its price range, but perhaps a bit more minerality. It drinks well on its own and would work very nicely with a Roasted Beets and Goat Cheese salad. Drink over the next two to four years. Screwcapped.
